About Us

Biolube was founded by George Barker and Bob Pennycoff who retired in 2021. In 2021, Kelly Johnson and Erik Bailey, co-owners of DR Lubricants, purchased the Biolube company. They worked side-by-side with the original founders in developing, manufacturing and shipping the Biolube line as a private label manufacturer for over 20 years.

Today, with the retirement of Barker and Pennycoff, new owners, Kelly Johnson and Erik Bailey still have the original founders' goal to provide the most environmentally friendly, cost competitive products that allow mills to increase their bottom line. Their team of expert chemists will continue to evolve the Lubie® product line keeping up with the demand for more cost efficient and ecologically friendly lubricants and coolants.

In The News

Biolube has created the only product customers’ have seen that actually dissolves and prevents soft woods such as spruce, pine, fir and cedar pitch, as well as hard woods, from building up on band saws, circle saws, moulders and finger joint blades.

“Since the introduction of Biolube’s Lubie ® 210 less than a year ago, our customers have reported tremendous results when applied through our Lube Master spray system,” said George Barker, founder of Biolube “The Lube Master spray system is designed to accurately atomize the correct formula, using only 2-3 quarts per 8 hour shift on a high strain 10”-12” band saw,” Barker stated. “In fact, our customers have reported better performance than expected.”

“Customers report longer blade/tool life and reduced downtime,” said co-founder Bob Pennycoff. “All our lubricants are biodegradable and non-toxic so our customers’ love them. We have seen an increased demand since the launching of Lubie ® 210”. Biolube offers over ten different Lubie ® lubricants engineered for different species of wood, along with coolants and cleaners.
